Busy day today. Lots of pictures to share with you all, gentle readers. We left Flagstaff about 10 this morning and took the scenic route through the national forest to the Grand Canyon.
We all know that I hate, abhor, and despise the desert in all its various forms. So why on earth did I take so many pictures of it.
Because once I get to Tacoma I don’t EVER have to go to or through the desert again. And if I do go through the desert again, I sincerely hope it will be on a lovely air conditioned train, preferably at night when I don’t have to look at it.
Say good bye to the desert!
In Page, AZ, we saw a little of Lake Powell. There was quite a controversy about the creation of the lake because of the incredible geological formations that are now submerged, and possibly lost forever.
We celebrated our 47th anniversary at the Olive Garden in St. George, Utah.
Tomorrow we see Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. I hope I can figure out what time zone I’m in, because we’ve been in and out and in and out again of Arizona that is really in Mountain time but it doesn’t observe Daylight Savings, so it’s with Pacific time. We’re in Utah, and (I hope) we’ll stay in Mountain time until we go into Pacific time in Washington.
